Prescription Contact lenses for Murray, UT
Any contact wearer knows how important comfort is when it comes to contacts. A dry, itchy or irritated contact can put your entire day to a screeching halt. It’s important that your contacts are both comfortable and meet all your vision needs. Finding the right prescription can be a difficult process, whether you have serious eye conditions or not. When you’re on the hunt for just the right prescription contact lenses, turn to the ophthalmologist at Mountain States Eye Center.
Soft Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are commonly used by most contact wearers. Because they are made of soft, flexible and breathable plastic, these are typically the most comfortable and easily adjustable contacts on the market. Soft prescription contact lenses are a great option for those who are either near or far-sighted, or with someone with astigmatism.
Gas Permeable Lenses
Gas permeable (GP) lenses are a good option for someone who is willing to trade instant comfort for sharper vision. While they are very comfortable for those who are experienced, they can take some time to get used to for newcomers. GP lenses are made of a rigid and durable plastic that allows oxygen in and around your eyes. Because your cornea needs oxygen to stay healthy, newer models of GP lenses are more comfortable and breathable.
These lenses will fit closer to your eye, are extremely durable and leave fewer deposits than soft contacts. GP lenses are ideal for anyone with astigmatism, presbyopia and keratoconus. The professionals at Mountain States Eye Center will conduct exams and prescribe you with GP lenses if you need them.
